  • 1 year and it was a slow transition. It didnt take long...the hard part was getting him to drink it when i didnt warm it up.

  • we started at 11 months. WIC told us to mix it with the formula a little at a time and eventually they weren't even wanting the formula they didnt notice a change by 12 months they were on cows milk totally

  • My 11 month old gets 2-3 oz of cow's milk in a sippy a few times a week, we won't start replacing nursing sessions until after her birthday. I think we will drop one session at a time so it will probably take a while.
